questions. on the one hand, he loses a day and there are only six days to go. so that is a big deal. the other thing is that what is more important is the loss perhaps in credibility. the speaker said his plan was going to, you know, save something like over a trillion dollars. but it only saves about $850 billion. so that's a bill difference, too. a question of credibility. on the other hand, he buys some time, because there are a number of people in the house of representatives, some of whom who actually spoke out last night and said this thing is not going to pass. i'm not going to vote for it. he gets a little bit more time to try to drum up the support he needs, because once he puts something on the floor, he has got to get a yea vote. >> all right. dan, you know, there is some talk of a band-aid slash patch approach. what would that do? >> reporter: well, look. a message you've heard from the white house last week or so, that the president does not embrace a short-term deal, but if, in fact, it does appear that there is some compromise happening, that both sides have agreed to

of the big issues that the white house has had with the house republican plan and what's really been seen as an area that needed to be negotiated and really could be the thing that could lead to a break-through on a deal is this idea of if you're going to have a two-part increase in the debt ceiling that would take the debt ceiling through the next election, november 2012, it was really how you tied that second increase in the debt ceiling after several months. the white house senate democrats didn't like the way that the house republicans were doing it. they felt it would have led to some chaotic situation like we have seen with all of this back and forth over the debt increase and they would have seen it again around the new year and they didn't want to do it again. they are looking at that sort of seam, if you will, in the context of the framework to maybe work it out in a way that is more amendable to the white house and democrats. >> brianna keilar for us at the white house. cnn is dedicated to providing you up to the minute coverage of the debt crisis and tomorrow night, we will bri
